Albany's Excelsior Pub adds beers, hours

ALBANY -- Mondays will be a little livelier for aficionados of New York beers and spirits. Effective next week, The Excelsior Pub at Cafe 217 will be open Mondays through Saturdays, an expansion of its current schedule.

Excelsior Pub at Café 217 in Albany, previously open Tuesday through Sunday -- except for a recent one-week winter break, will be open on Mondays as well starting next week.

The hours now will be 4 p.m. to midnight Monday-Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Owner Jason Bowers is in the process of expanding his beer line with more New York brews not usually found in this market -- such as the Hop Warrior Imperial IPA from Rooster Fish Brewing in Watkins Glen and Whale Brown Ale from Community Beer Works in Buffalo he announced on his Facebook page.

The Excelsior -- the name is the state motto, and reflective of the New York-only drink offerings -- is located at 12½ Delaware Avenue. Phone: 462-0050.

    I’d like to see them get a cask beer engine installed. With Mahar’s closing cask beer won’t be any easier to come by.
